Bye Bye Red

Surprisingly, it didn't take that long! Not compared to how long it took to stitch it! The fabric held up very well.. I'm not sure what type it is, but it's heavier and I really like it. Took me about two days to get all the red out. Last night I put on her head, arm, the baby's head and I started all the blanket. Anything to avoid the red for now!:)

Hi Sara, I found your blog through The Twisted Stitcher. Such a shame you had to frog all that red, but I would have done the same too. Your stitching is beautiful.

I looked at your previous post and I can't believe you frogged all of that red ;)

it was a ton, wasn't it? But if I had tried to fudge it I would have noticed it forever! I have a Paula Vaughn pattern where I accidentally switched the two colors in the window of the door.. it's obvious to nobody except me and I see it every single time I look at the picture! I should have frogged and fixed it!

The fabric really held up nicely.. wish I knew what it was!:)

I commiserate with you! Removing stitches is never fun... I just finished a piece where I think I removed more stitches than I put in (of course I'm exaggerating, but it certainly felt like it). I titled the piece "My Nemesis" even though it was a La-D-Da pattern of "O Gentle Words and Pieceful Ways". I was happy to be done with it, despite having to go through so much with it.

Good that you did what you know you needed to do in order that you didn't resent the red :) Now you can get on your merry way and stitch again, as well as have the peace of your mind over this beautiful piece!!! :)
